Hearing to consider a request by John Swift for a third time extension (EXT2018-00041) and project modification of previously approved Minor Use Permit/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2012-00117) to: a) construct a 1,936-square-foot single-family residence and a 1,294-square-foot garage and workshop below; b) construct a 3,100-foot driveway; c) install two 5,000 gallon water tanks, associated utilities, and a stormwater detention system; and d) convert an existing single-family residence to farm support quarters. The proposed project would result in the disturbance of 2.89 acres of a 230-acre area in the Agriculture land use category, and is located at 3698 Clark Valley Road, approximately one mile south of Los Osos Valley Road and two miles southeast of the Los Osos urban reserve line. The site is in the Estero Planning Area.
The project was modified through a Substantial Conformance process which allowed the relocation of the proposed driveway, to a lower sloped, non-paved alternative which has been approved by CalFire and will reduce biological impacts. Also to be considered is the environmental determination and approval of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator found that the previously adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration is adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA. Per State CEQA Guidelines (Sec. 15164(a), Sec. 15162) an Addendum to the adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared as the following conditions apply: 1) only minor technical changes or additions are necessary; 2) no substantial changes have been made or occurred that would require major revisions to the Mitigated Negative Declaration due to either new significant effects or substantial increases in the severity of previously identified significant effects; 3) substantial changes have not occurred with respect to the circumstances under which the project is undertaken; and 4) no new information of substantial importance which was not known or could not have been known at the time of the adopted Mitigated Negative Declaration has been identified. No new mitigation measures have been proposed.

Hearing to consider a request by Joe and Linda Lippe & AT&T Mobility for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2017-00017) to allow for the construction and operation of an unmanned wireless communications facility. Two possible sites are proposed. Site “A” was considered at the July 26, 2018, Planning Commission hearing. Site “A” is located approximately 310 feet west of Little Quail Road and approximately 195 feet from the east (side) property line. The project would result in the construction of a 60-foot tall artificial pine tree (monopine) containing: eight (8) panel antennas, two (2) microwave dishes, ancillary antenna support equipment installed within the branches of the mono-pine structure, and ground facilities including a 137-square-foot equipment shelter, an emergency backup power generator, equipment racks, two air conditioning units, power facilities, emergency lighting, and utility meter. All equipment will be installed within a new 21’ x 34’ lease area surrounded by a 6.5-foot tall fence. The facility also includes a 730-foot long utility trench for electrical lines and a new 510-foot long all-weather driveway. The area of disturbance is approximately 11,822 square feet on a roughly 10-acre parcel. The Planning Commission requested that the applicant propose an alternative location elsewhere on the site to be reviewed by staff and considered by the Planning Commission at a subsequent hearing. The alternative location proposed, Site “B”, would be located 155 feet west of Little Quail Road and approximately 370 feet from the east (side) property line. The project designed for Site B would require a taller antenna and different design requirements. The project would result in the construction of an 80-foot tall artificial pine tree (monopine) containing: twelve (12) panel antennas, one (1) microwave dish, ancillary antenna support equipment installed within the branches of the monopine structure, and ground facilities including 49-square-foot equipment shelter, an emergency backup power generator, equipment racks, one air conditioning unit, power facilities, emergency lighting, and utility meter. All equipment will be installed within a new 20’ x 32’ lease area surrounded by an 8-foot tall block wall. The facility also includes a 310-foot long utility trench for electrical lines and a new 550-foot long all-weather driveway. The area of disturbance is approximately 19,700 square feet on a 10-acre parcel. The proposed project is within the Rural Lands land use category and is located at 10550 Little Quail Road, directly southeast of the Park Hill Road/Little Quail Road intersection, approximately 7 miles east of the Santa Margarita township. The site is in the Las Pilitas Sub Area of the North County Planning Area.
Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued May 29, 2018 of issuance for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics, Biological Resources, Geology and Soils, Hazards/Hazardous Materials and Noise and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning.org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s).

Hearing to consider a request by Monarch Dunes, LLC for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2018-00214) to authorize the establishment of commercial uses and construct related site improvements to develop the village center within Woodlands Village. The development would occur in two phases to accommodate a variety of commercial uses allowed by the Woodlands Specific Plan, such as offices, retail sales, food and beverage sales, restaurants, and personal services. Phase 1 will consist of two buildings totaling 10,000 square feet, and Phase 2 would consist of up to 130,000 square feet of floor area. The project site was previously graded with Stage 1 development. The project includes a request for a parking modification for Phase 2 development, pursuant to Land Use Ordinance Section 22.18.020.H. The proposed project is within the Commercial Retail land use category. Phase 1 is located on the northeast corner of Trilogy Parkway and Mesa Road, and Phase 2 is located east of Via Concha Road between Trilogy Parkway and Centre Point Place and north of Trilogy Parkway between Via Concha Road and Vista Tesoro Place in Woodlands Village. The site is located in the South County (Inland) Sub Area of the South County Planning Area.
